During our week, we meet two remarkable young women who had decided to break away from the traditional expected life style of a 15-18-year-old girl in Kaberamaido.They dreamt of becoming professional nurses.
The difficulties confronting these children are social-economic and cultural driven. Most children receive a limited schooling because their parents cannot afford to pay for secondary education. Unfortunately, these young girls enter in to early age marriages, and are unable to complete a proper education.
Rebecca and Hope are special young women, who were hoping to change their lives. We are thankful that we met, these 2 girls and the entire community of Kaberamaido have changed our lives. Their dreams have influenced us to care and make a change in not only their lives, but now the lives of many young people interested in the nursing profession. Education for Hope
We Care to make a Change.
